ART6

In most horror films, a pretty good amount of characters suffer an inevitable demise due to the actions, or really bad luck of a single character. You know, the character you find yourself secretly wanting to slap,  thanks to their continual bad decisions, ones that end up ruining the life of those who are “lucky” enough to be associated […]

DEAR ASTRON-6: AN OPEN LOVE LETTER

Astron-6

In 2011, I was walking around the convention floor at the Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo when I spotted a huge advertisement out of the corner of my eye.  A beautiful brunette woman was lifting her shirt to expose her underboob while curled closely to an eye-patched man clad in black and pointing a […]

While most films being released these days typically refrain from making any form of statement, in fear of losing their core audiences, every once in a while, one slips in and is able to make its viewers think.

Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett are pretty familiar with working side by side by now. Having collaborated together on over half a dozen projects (including both V/H/S films, as well as A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE and last year’s YOU’RE NEXT), it’s safe to say that they make a pretty solid team. After scoring big with genre fans […]

ScreenHunter_106 Aug. 03 01.25

The ’90s was an interesting decade to say the least. Growing up, nothing was better to me, than sitting down to watch either a horror film or one of my favorite HBO programs, whether it be TALES FROM THE CRYPT or THE KIDS IN THE HALL, most of my nights were spent eating McDonald’s and being […]
